Now you can hire an e-bike with Sustainable Kirriemuir

In Scotland, more than 40% of journeys are less than 2 miles, but most of us would admit to taking the car for short journeys when for some of these we probably could have walked or cycled. As transport is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in Scotland as well as a major contributor to poor air quality, there are incredible environmental gains, as well as health benefits, from switching shorter car journeys to more active means such as walking and cycling. And it’s cheaper too! But, Sustainable Kirrie staff and volunteers have certainly noticed that Kirrie is a tad on the hilly side, so we thought having some community e-bikes may help us shift how we travel in and around Kirrie.

Thanks to funding from Energy Saving Trust and The National Lottery, Sustainable Kirriemuir has a mini fleet of e-bikes. The bikes are for members of the community who are considering buying their own e-bike to try out.

In the fleet, there are 3 e-bikes and 1 cargo e-bike.

These are:

  • 2 x Raleigh step through e-bike (Frame size: 46cm and 50cm)
  • 1 x Raleigh cross bar e-bike (Frame size: 56cm)
  • 1 x Raleigh Cargo e-bike which can be used for small passengers or shopping/goods.

The bikes come with a lock, helmet, lights, pannier and a hi-vis vest.

Are you thinking it’s time to cycle?

Here’s what you need to know…

How long can I borrow the e-bike for?

Members of the community can borrow the bikes for 4 weeks.
